For the first time in its 32-year history, the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show is inviting privately owned classics to be apart of a Pride of Ownership display for classic cars at its November show.
Event Director Dan Nwaokolo explains: “The Pride of Ownership display is one of the most popular features in both our sister event, the Restoration and Classic Car Show, and the Classic Motorbike Show. But the one everyone wants to bring their classic to is the November season finale.
“We have been inundated with requests over the years but space is always an issue – and still is – but demand is such that we have devoted an area that can fit approximately 12 to 15 stunning classics for display at our 2015 event.”
Owners are invited to submit details of their cars and pictures to the show’s Features Director Andrea Seed by email to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible as space is extremely limited and highly sought after.
There is no criteria as such for the car applications but the organisers are looking for the most rare, most unusual and the most cherished. Dan continued: “The standard of the car is obviously important but for us, the passion of the owner and the journey the car and driver have been on is equally appealing. It will be tough to decide which cars join us so we’ll be calling on industry experts for their help and advice.”
Richard Morley, Operations Director for Lancaster Insurance, said: “We know how enthusiastic people are about their classics and showcasing their beauty to fellow fans and we can’t wait to see the cars on display and hear the history behind them. Here at Lancaster we champion people sharing their stories and have a dedicated community based site www.lovemyclassic.com for people to do just that. The Pride of Ownership area gives enthusiasts the opportunity to celebrate their achievements and I’m sure it’ll be a huge success.”
The 2015 Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show will be held from 13th to 15th November at Birmingham’s NEC with tickets now on sale.
